After day 3 it sees the Defending champions QLD on top of the ladder with 3 wins and SA, VIC, WA and Tas all on 2 wins. In the singles it sees SA on top in the U18s , QLD on top for U12s & U15s, NT on top for the U18 Girls. What I do enjoy seeing is the way these juniors are fierce competitors on the table but off the table the friendships made are amazing and this is what Junior 8 ball is about.
Second day of play saw some outstanding pool played by all, with most games coming down to the wire. The sportsmanship these juniors show on and off the table is also a fantastic thing to watch. The teams event is shaping up to be a thriller as with so much talent in all teams it’s hard to tell who will be there at the end.
I would like to welcome all competitors, Team Managers, Parents, Umpires & Officials to the 2019 Australian Junior National Championships here at the Country Club Tasmania.
As a past Junior Team Manager and JDO for SA 8 Ball I am proud to be at this years Australian Junior National Championships as the new Australian Junior Development Officer and look forward to the next week of Competition with Australia’s best Junior 8 ball players.
The level of competition Junior 8 Ball Players bring to the sport continues to grow every day and I look forward to the continued growth of junior 8 ball in Australia for years to come. Our junior players are the future of our sport in this country.
As Australian JDO my aim is to grow junior 8 ball even more in Australia by encouraging and supporting all current players and new comers to the sport.
I would also like to remind everyone that this is still a sport, we are not playing for cattle stations. To all junior players, work hard, play smart and remember to have fun!
